What we're about

Welcome, Active Outdoors Fans!

The Denver Trail Heads is a group for people with a wide array of interests in the outdoors. We will be hiking, snowshoeing, camping, cross country skiing, etc. Occasionally you will see a backpack or camping trip or an overnight at one of the many Forest Service cabins.

Our goal is to provide a safe, fun environment for ALL to enjoy outdoor activities, regardless of:

• Age

• Gender

• National Origin

• Race

• Religion

• Sexual Orientation

To date, we have hosted over 1,800 events. These trips were all made possible by our organizers. We work hard to organize trips and make them fun for you. The tone of an event is set by the organizer. Hiking speed, number of breaks, fitness level required, picture taking, dog-friendly, etc. Sometimes it is not as much the location or type of event, but who is running it that will determine if it is the event for you. More information about our organizers can be found here (http://www.meetup.com/denver-trail-heads/about/).

If you have an idea for a trip or you are interested in becoming an organizer, please let Paul and Bernard know. We are always looking for qualified organizers to help out!

Please RSVP yes only if you definitely plan to come. If you change your mind, please update your RSVP.

By joining this group you agree to the policies and terms of the group. The policies and terms can be found here (http://www.meetup.com/denver-trail-heads/pages/Policies_and_Terms/).

We do not charge members a fee to join the group. However, donations are appreciated.
